      With tonight’s outing against Genoa, the captain equals the 476 appearances made by the former Bianconeri hero between the posts

      When Gigi Buffon arrived at Juve in the summer of 2001, he was already a phenomenon. But he had yet to acquire the legendary status he has cemented even further today, 13 years later, by reaching the milestone of the 476 appearances made by Dino Zoff.

      With his outing against Genoa this evening (and what an outing it was, saving a penalty to deny Genoa the lead), the current Bianconeri number one has equalled his illustrious predecessor’s achievement, yet another feat to file alongside the six Scudetto titles, four Italian Super Cups and 2006 World Cup trophy the 36-year-old has won during an extraordinary career.

      It’s worth pointing out that some also count three appearances in the 1980/81 New Year Cup as part of Zoff’s tally, but may it not detract from the fact that knowing that both great men have defended the goal for so long is a point of pride for everyone associated with Juventus.
